I worked for the City Paper many years (and many changes of ownership) ago; in my mind it already left the city when it transferred most functions to Atlanta, leaving only the tiniest reportorial footprint here.

No matter who owns it, I suppose they could continue that way - like those Clear Channel radio stations where everything but the weather and traffic emanates from a central computer, and they keep a local sheen by peppering in requests and dedications like "This one goes out to Laura in Columbia Heights!" Loose Lips and a few other things may live on forever in some form, but the picture for print is dismal and has been for ages.

looser than lucinda (Ye Mad Puffin), Monday, 16 October 2017 14:44 (six months ago) Permalink

The Nashville-based Southcomm that bought it from the Atlanta folks doesn't want to hold on to any more papers/websites that aren't bringing in a big enough profit. So just as the not-connected Baltimore City Paper is shutting down Nov. 1st; the Washington City Paper may get shut down 12-31. Loose lips on DC politics, various cover stories, local music coverage, citylight previews of events that don't get highlighted elsewhere (some club dance events, punk, African, etc.), other voices on DC restaurants, etc. will be gone. They have never marketed their web presence well enough to get more readers (be they college kids, longtime locals, 20-something millennials) and they have cut back on newspaper availability, plus the advertising staff hasn't been able to get more ads, so here we are.

They cut back on the # of newspaper boxes and assume everyone knows their website, gets their morning daily news & food & music aggregation email, gets their "To Do Today" and "To Do This Weekend" emails, or follows their 2 twitter accounts. Only fanatics like me do.

I find the paper in Shirlington (I work out in VA) and sometimes in DC. I email, FB, & Instagram links to my little previews and reviews and post 'em over on ILM.

Speaking of hard to find newspapers, this is going on tonight at the Shaw Library:

"History and State of D.C.'s Black Press" from 6:30 to 8pm

Join four local journalists, editors and publishers for a lively and informative discussion about the history and state of the Black Press in Washington City from the first abolitionist newspaper founded before the Civil War to the challenges and opportunities facing black journalists in today's local media scene.

The panel will be moderated by Denise Rolark-Barnes, Publisher of The Washington Informer.

Panelists will be Howard University's Jazmin Goodwin, Editor-in-chief of The Hilltop, James Wright, local reporter for the Washington Afro and Prof. A. Peter Bailey, author and professor of the history of the Black Press.

Oh no, Ben Carson's corrupt buddy wants to buy Washington City Paper.

His plans include a possible change to glossy print, an increased focus on celebrities, distribution to places like Philadelphia and New York, and more human-interest stories — he specifically suggested some soft-focus takes on prominent Trumpites, such as Hope Hicks’s hobbies or Stephen K. Bannon’s charitable works.

So Armstrong Williams has taken himself out of the running to buy the City Paper (per a tweet from W. Post writer Terris) but there's been no announcement of anyone else yet. Southcomm wants to sell the paper/website by 12-31. I know many of you never read it, but a few geeks in town do check out its politics and arts and foodie coverage, and even its sports column.

A lot of those are totally destination special-occasion places. To my mind those should be evaluated in a different category than the really-good-but-accessible-to-ordinary-mortals restaurants.

I will admit that I have eaten both at Rose's Luxury and at Pineapple & Pearls. Both were extremely good meals, but in different ways. Neither is a normal weeknight-dinner-out kind of experience; both had great food but P&P was more about drama and presentation.

If pressed to choose among luxe destination restaurants, I might sentimentally prefer the Restaurant Eve tasting menu. But then I haven't yet done Inn at Little Washington. Maybe I will do so one of these days, but it's not a high priority. There are so many great-but-approachable places still to try.

And I'm still not tired of reliable old boring neighborly weeknight choices like Nam Viet, Lebanese Taverna, Rosa Mexicano, Jaleo, Ray's, Kapnos, etc.

Harder still when any dinner out requires blowing $200 on a babysitter.

Splurged for Rose’s L twice. Pretty good. Just read that P & Pearl is raising prices even higher. So no thanks.

Fundraising for Funk Parade

curmudgeon, Friday, 9 March 2018 04:26 (one month ago) Permalink

On March 6, we announced that Funk Parade was well short of meeting its fundraising goals for 2018, and the event was unlikely to take place. We've made this campaign in response to requests from many supporters for a way to give.

All contributions are helpful. If we are able to raise an additional $60,000 through crowdfunding and sponsorship pledges, the event will take place. Otherwise, these funds will be used to pay off debts, and any remaining funds will be donated to a local charity.

Donations will go to All One City, the District-based 501(c)3 nonprofit which produces Funk Parade.
